Here's another blog from a Milton chiropractor discussing : Text neck
Text neck is a repetitive strain injury to the neck, most commonly caused by poor posture when using a smartphone or tablet. Looking down at your smartphone or tablet and dropping your head forward leads to an unnatural change in the curve of your neck, and the misalignment increases the load on your muscles.
We are now seeing these issues occurring in younger individuals as well due to excessive use of smartphones.
The infographic above shows how the changes in posture increases the force on your neck, leading to neck pain.
